I got a mind to ramble
I got a mind to rob an steal
I got a mind to ramble
I got a mind to rob an steal
I got a mind to hi-jack, people
You don't know the way I feel

I can stand right ch'ere
Look over onto the avenue
I can stand right ch'ere
Look over onto the avenue
I can see ev'ry little ole thing
That my little ol' baby do

When I had my baby
I tried to do my very best
When I had my baby
I tried to do my very best
I got a telegram from her
People, an she was goin' way out in the west

Now, I love my baby
But I just can't believe what she's doin'
I love my baby
I just can't believe just what she's doin'
But maybe I'll have confidence in her
Some long old lonesome day

Mmm-mmm-mmm

(piano)

Lord, an I don't know what in this world to do
I even cries in my sleep, baby
An it's comin' right back on you.
